Cori Caulfield has a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts (Dance) from Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts, and a diploma in Limon Modern Dance Technique from the Limon Institute, New York. According to The Vancouver Sun, Cori “Caulfield has created some of the most memorable moments of contemporary dance in Canada,” as a choreographer and performer, while heading Caulfield School of Dance since the early 1980’s. Beyond Caulfield School of Dance, Cori has instructed and choreographed for performing arts organizations both locally and abroad including Ballet British Columbia (through MovEnt); the response (Amber Funk Barton), Victoria’s Belfry Theatre (Electric Company Theatre); the Goh Ballet Academy and Company (of which she was a member); Harbour Dance; the University of Lethbridge; Concordia University and Ballet Divertimento in Montreal; the University of Alberta; Patravadi Theatre Company in Bangkok, Thailand; etc. She has been a guest speaker at Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, Main Dance, and Grant McEwan University.
As a choreographer, Cori was recognized as “a leading figure in the Canadian cultural milieu” with the Paul D. Fleck Fellowship in the Arts. Cori and her professional dance theatre company Coriograph Theatre have toured extensively with her “meticulously crafted solos” (The Globe and Mail) and ensemble works in Canada, the U.S., Europe, and Asia including having her full length solo show “Portrait Solos” presented across Canada including the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.
From a Guest Artist residency at William Forsythe’s Ballet Frankfurt in 2001, Cori toured internationally for 6 years with Kidd Pivot in duets Crystal Pite created for herself and Cori: “Field: Fiction”, “Uncollected Work“, “Farther Out”, and others. Cori has also performed as a dancer, actor, and singer in the works of other renown Canadian choreographers and companies including Project 21 (Donald Sales and Cherise Barton) , Companie Marie Chouinard, MOVETHECOMPANY, Mascall Dance, and Margie Gillis.
According to the Georgia Straight “the head of Coriograph Theatre…. has created character studies that are as unforgettable for her acting as they are for her striking movement…. Spectacular is not too strong a word to describe Caulfield on-stage. She can isolate her joints and fragment her motions to captivating effect. Even the way she curls her fingers, rotates her shoulders, or tilts her head is compelling; she’s simply one of those dancers you can’t take your eyes off.”
Her students have gone on to Tony Award winning Broadway productions; world renown ballet and contemporary companies, including Ballet British Columbia, Josh Beamish’s MOVETHECOMPAY, and San Francisco Ballet Company; recurring roles on television for ABC, Fox, and STARZ networks, etc.
